Hello from an 86 560sl owner

Hi, the name is Ben, from the coast of North Carolina.

My father bought an '86 560 SL from a man named Hans in Hawaii, it's white with blue interior and a blue soft top. We've had it since about 1996 and it's gone from 76K to about 130K since then.

My father just gave it to me as he's tired of having to mess with it, especially the vacuum system that always seems to be giving us problems.

I love the car, it's gorgeous, runs great, and I'm excited about the soon to be possibilities of working on it. I used to have an 81 300 D as well, until my brother totaled it and I'm looking forward to getting another one.

Looking forward to all the knowledge in the forum, take it easy.
